A fuming mum has divided opinions on the internet after claiming people who snore should be banned from busy campsites.
The mum made the claim after she said she was unable to sleep due to the loud fellow camper set up a few tents away. Complaining on Mumsnet, she unleashed on the noisy sleeper.
“Having finally managed to get to sleep on our mysteriously but persistently deflating air mattress, someone in the field next door wakes me up making a noise like a food processor being turned on and off,” she wrote.
“I have young kids in the tent with me and older kids in the tent text door so I can’t wear ear plugs.
“It’s a family campsite so it’s not just me who won’t be able to wear ear plugs.
“Just don’t go camping near others if you snore.
“They must know they snore because they’re not pitched up alone, so their party must all have come prepared with earplugs.”
She asked if she was being unreasonable – and split opinion.
Some said they understood her being annoyed.
“Agree with you. It’s inconsiderate to inflict so much noise on others at night, not much of a holiday for everyone who then has to deal with sleep deprivation.”
Another person added: “Sending sympathy (I’d go poke them myself).”
Someone else said: “I’ve been camping loads of times and have heard multiple people snoring.
“If you’re camping I think you have to accept it isn’t going to be peaceful unfortunately.”
